We interrupt your regularly scheduled post…

Hey everyone! Alex is writing a blog post… or more of an apology, actually. So we promised a post about Disneyland, but we’ve been distracted. Mostly it was me distracting Julia and taking over the computer.

You see, the new version of Picasa, Google’s free image organizing/editing software has something called face recognition. This basically means that you can organize all your photos according to the faces in the picture. For example, Emmy has something like two thousand pictures on our computer, and Kaylee has about a thousand (the second child is always overlooked, right Kaylee?). Anyway, it is somewhat addictive to organize your pictures this way, especially when there are tens of thousands of faces embedded in countless pictures. You see funny things, too: the software for some reason thinks that Emmy and Kaylee look just like their cousins Logan and Joshua, which is true if you look at them a certain way.

Anyway, what this means for all of you is that you can’t see all of our amazing Disneyland pictures. I left a few teasers on my Facebook page, but you have to be my friend (or Julia’s friend) on Facebook to see them. In the mean time we’re busy playing around with Picasa and looking at all the pictures of our beautiful girls. I imagine we’ll have our Disneyland pictures on here any day now… as soon as we’re done playing around in Picasa.

  1. This looks fun. The things I miss out on just ’cause I use iPhoto with the Picasa udpater.

    I think it’s funny that Logan and Josh are sometimes identified as Kaylee and Emmy. I was looking through some of our old pictures last night, and came across one from when I was maybe two (I have curlers in my hair and you are on the bed behind me) … Logan (or was it Josh?) said I was Emmy. πŸ™‚ Also, I found a picture that just reminds me so much of YOU but it’s LOGAN, at nine months old (I should send it to you so you can have a look). There must be some family resemblance!

    Off to check your Facebook photos (I always forget to check my photos since the layout on Facebook changed)…

  2. I can understand what you mean, Tif – Picasa is really confusing at first. I have to fix all of the folders and everything before I can use it because the navigation is stupid. But looking at all the faces is fun.

    Beth – I think the new version of iPhoto might have face recognition, if I remember correctly. Even Windows Photo Gallery has it, but you do have to pay money to upgrade iPhoto.

  3. My iphoto has that option and it’s pretty cool. It can get addicting in going through every picture and tagging a name to it! I could sit for hours or until my legs fall asleep and then I have to quit πŸ™‚
